South Carolina Governor Calls Reporter ‘Little Girl’ Over Story

September 11, 2011

By Associated Press,

South Carolina’s first woman governor called a female reporter a “little girl” over an article detailing at least $127,000 in taxpayer dollars the governor and other state officials spent on a European economic development trip.

In a syndicated radio talk show interview Thursday, Republican Gov. Nikki Haley was asked about last Sunday’s article by 25-year-old Renee Dudley in The Post and Courier of Charleston.

“And all I will tell you is: God bless that little girl at The Post and Courier. I mean her job is to try and create conflict. My job is to create jobs. In the end I’m going to have jobs to show for it,” Haley said on “The Laura Ingraham Show.”

The story detailed a weeklong trip in June by Haley and two dozen others. It included stays at five-star hotels, drinks at the Ritz Paris and an upgraded “chalet” at the Paris Air Show, where the state had previously rented a booth. With a Boeing Co. manufacturing plant in North Charleston and BMW Manufacturing in Greer, Haley said she needed to court aerospace companies at the Paris event and manufacturers in Munich.
